"Makes Me Dream"
acrylic, some collage and silver leaf on an 11x14 stretched canvas

I was still working the background on this piece when I came across the quote by Vincent van Gogh. My heart leapt and I knew this painting was to be inspired by "Starry Night", one of my favorites.

"For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream."

I have always enjoyed gazing at the stars and pondering what my mind decides to ponder that night. The peace and possibilities of life open to me and I feel refreshed. May we all have our own stars that make us dream.
